Drink enough water
Importance of proper hydration needs no introduction. It not only helps keep up the water balance in our body, but also boosts metabolism, gut health and digestion – further promoting immunity and nourishment.
Eat wholesome breakfast
Breakfast is deemed the most important meal of the day. Literally meaning breaking the fast, a wholesome morning meal refuels you with energy after night-long fasting. This subsequently, helps us kick-start the day.
Eat seasonal vegetables
Every season brings along a host of vegetables that are loaded with several essential nutrients. Adding those vegetables in our daily diet may help immune us against several seasonal diseases.
Load up on fruits
Fruits are considered superfood. They are light, fulfilling and low in calorie, making it an ideal snack to munch on in between meals.
Reduce gap between meals
If you thought starving may help you lose weight, then you are absolutely mistaken. Experts across the world suggest, it is always good to have smaller portion of meal in every 3-4 hours. This helps you digest food easily and regulate metabolism. These factors further help prevent bloating, acidity etc.
Avoid junk foods
We love pizzas, burgers and fries. Don’t we? But the excess fat in each of these foods lead to different types of lifestyle diseases- obesity being one major issue. This is why it is always recommended to avoid these fatty, greasy foods as much possible; and load up on healthy alternatives instead.
Avoid sugary drinks
We agree keeping our body hydrated is the most important part of healthy diet. But that doesn’t mean we can load up on colas, readymade juices, sodas et al. These drinks include high amount of sugar, which (like junk foods) lead to lifestyle problems like diabetes, obesity and more
Include healthy carbs and fats
While excess carbs and fats lead to several health issues, it can’t also be denied that healthy carbs and fats are much needed to keep up a nutrient balance in our body. So, experts suggest inclusion of whole grain, fish etc in our diet to include these nutrients in the healthies way possible.
Exercise also plays an important role in healthy diet habit. Moderate exercise, brisk walking etc are important to help regulate metabolism and digest food.
Another important factor affecting our diet is sleep. Studies have shown adequate amount sleep actually have positive effects on what we eat every day. Good amount of sleep helps rest our body, which further help us make the most of the nutrients we eat.
